Oregon Hunting and Wildlife Habitat
Oregon is on the far western border of the US with California to the south and Washington to the north, and the Pacific Coastline to the west. The state is abundant in incredible natural resources, countless mountain ranges within the Cascades and Blue Ranges. The Cascade Mountains run parallel to the coast from Alaska, down through Washington and continue through Oregon. The Blue Mountains are in the north-east corner of the state. It has lush forests along the coastal regions and rugged, arid desert plains on the south-east part of the state.
Oregon Hunting Licenses, Tags and Regulation
Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has been very active in managing the habitat and big game hunting in Oregon. The most sought-after big game require a license and a tag. The tag is awarded by random drawing from pre-registered hunters. One problem for non-resident hunters: only a small percentage of draw winners are non-residents. (Usually 3-5%) All harvested game must be reported to the ODFW But Oregon is a great place to hunt, even with the strict limitations. Our featured outfitters and hunting lodges will be happy to assist you in the process. Applications must be submitted by May 15 and results are posted by June 20.
